Lisa’s Big Day: The Bridesmaid’s POV PART 1

Lisa is finally married and on her way to her honeymoon on some obscure tropical island! Lucky girl! I was privileged enough to be part of her big day and super excited to share with you my non-pro shots of the day. I’m sure Lisa will post some from her photographer, the uber talented Sabine Scherer later on as well. Both ceremony and reception were held outdoors at the beautiful Hakone Gardens, a Japanese koi pond garden in Saratoga, CA.

Hung at the gate entrance of the garden.
The bridesmaids’ bouquets and boutonnieres were all made by Lisa herself on the night before her wedding. Yes, she is crazy, but it takes a little bit of crazy to be a creative genius. =) I loved the little pom ball boutonnieres.

The programs sat in an apple crate she found for $1 at some random store. The covers were printed on a metallic stardream green paper through my inkjet and the inside was printed on kraft paper through my laser printer.


these were inspired by the lovely work of Erin Jang


Each table centerpiece sat one of these lovelies. Two yellow birdies nesting on a delicious red velvet or banana cake on top of wood stumps cut by the bride’s very own hubby. I was in love with these.


At the reception, this was one of many tables set up. It was the sweet bar full of Paulette’s macaroons, lemonade and a popcorn bar all in the colors of the wedding


The table numbers were held by one large, evenly round white balloon with a tag of the table number printed on. Each balloon was held down by a single green apple. She found a local balloon shop that sold these in all different sizes and colors.

Real Wedding: Michelle & Gary

This weekend, I was in San Diego for one of our old church youth kids’ wedding. It was a really cute wedding with a lot of fun, little elements. It took place at Rancho Bernardo Inn Golf Resort & Spa. I had never seen this at any wedding, but for the recessional, the couple, the bridal party and the parents literally skipped down the aisle! It was quite cute and totally fit their personalities.

For the “wedding cake”, they had a lot of little mousse cakes of mango, chocolate and redbean green tea. They were all quite tasty . I also thought the little fruit escort cards were so fun. Everything was really colorful.

Their whole theme was honeybees so at the candy bar, there was a whole plate of honey packages with a bee sitting on top!

Congrats to Michelle & Gary! You guys had a wonderful wedding!
